  • Very nice little excursion, well kept grounds and gardens, staff exceptionally kind and helpful. They held an open art day, where you could just come sit down and paint. A very refreshing idea. And very up to standard coffee house, well done
  • Gorgeous castle and garden that is very well maintained. The grounds are lovely to walk around and the castle itself is undergoing a restoration on the upper floors which will hopefully be completed in the near future. The main floor is open and has some very informative displays featuring details about the castle, it's architecture, and the people who lived and visited it over the years. There is a large walled kitchen garden that is worth walking around and is maintained actively. Off to one side there are some ruins of an old monastic building which are quite peaceful to walk around and enjoy.
